Parnall Correctional Facility
Jackson, Michigan
Project Background
Energy Systems Group (ESG) was selected
to develop an energy savings performance
contract (ESPC) that includes building
improvements and efficiency measures
to reduce operating costs at the Parnall
Correctional Facility. The comprehensive
energy infrastructure improvements,
lighting retrofits, heating and cooling
system upgrades, and water conservation
measures implemented by ESG at the
Parnall Correctional Facility will result in
total life cycle savings of over $30 million.
The ESPC project implemented by ESG
equates to direct savings to Michigan
taxpayers and presents several
positive implications for the State of
Michigan on the fronts of sustainability,
strategic energy independence and
reduced utility consumption.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has
repeatedly acknowledged that reinvesting
in Michigan’s infrastructure is essential
to growing Michigan’s economy and
enhancing its quality of life. Underlining
its commitment to achieving these
goals, ESG brings years of experience in
ESPC success for numerous Michigan
customers in the government, education,
healthcare and commercial sectors.
Strategies & Solutions
As a result of this innovative partnership,
Parnall’s utility costs will be reduced by
about 40 percent and water consumption
costs will be reduced by more than $2
million, over the 10-year term of the ESPC
contract. ESG guarantees the savings will
meet annual payments to cover the $12.89
million project costs. This project has also
created jobs with more than 48,760 man
hours for skilled construction workers.
Environmental Benefits
Carbon footprint reduced by 4,187 metric
tons of CO
annually or any of the following:
• Planting more than 107,000 trees annually
• Removal of emissions from more than 800
cars annually
• Creating enough energy to power more
than 500 homes annually
By leveraging private sector
expertise, which is able to
guarantee savings, we should
be able to make our buildings
more efficient without
spending additional taxpayer
funds. Reducing costs in the
Department of Corrections
and other departments is
what reinventing Michigan is
all about.”
